The name George Elmy will forever reflect the heroism of the Crew so tragically lost in 1962 . . . The Seaham Lifeboat recovered and restored has now returned home to Seaham Harbour Marina.

    Lovely to see her home. Her tragic story will not be forgotten now. Five brave men launched with her, and having saved four men and a boy from a stricken coble set sail for home. She foundered just short of the harbour and all but one of her people died, the one surviver was one saved from the coble. RNLI rebuilt her and used her as standby boat before she returned to service in Poole. Now her duty is done I wish her well.
